DevExpress Universal v16.2 released

From the myriad blog posts you’ve seen here on our Community Site recently, all labeled “Coming Soon in v16.2”, I’m sure you’ve been anticipating our second major release of the year, knowing that it is just around the corner. Well, wait no more: the teams completed their testing of the build and it was published to the Download Center early this morning, my time. If you are an active customer – er, that is, you have an active subscription, I’m not commenting on your level of exercise! – you can go now to our Download Center, log in, and download the latest and greatest.

universal-16.2-awards-facebookFor what’s new in this release, please go to this page and read all about the enhancements we’ve provided.

For every major release, no matter how hard we try, the new features and enhancements are bound to cause a few breaking changes. We do make an effort to minimize their number and impact, but there will be some. (I wrote about this last time for the v16.1 release.) You can read about the v16.2 breaking changes here. As it happens that new site is now fully interactive: you can select to see the breaking changes for a particular version, or the known issues and the resolved issues. You can even elect to view what changes are applicable when upgrading from a previous version.

Part of the process of releasing a major version like this involves many people doing many jobs. Development, documentation, blogs, marketing, and so on. One of these jobs is writing the Press Release, and I was interested to learn in the one that’s just about to go out that, over the past 4 years, DevExpress has won 38 first place Visual Studio Magazine Readers’ Choice awards. Those are awards that are based on votes from the readers of VSM, and we are really grateful to the people who through their development work have decided that DevExpress products are so good, they’re worth voting for. Thank you. We hope that what we have in v16.2 (and what we are preparing for v17.1) is going to validate that trust in and appeal of our products.
